Adonis is a four-piece Lebanese band formed in 2011. The band first came into sight with its debut single “Stouh Adonis” (2012), a pop-folk hymn relating mischievous night-time adventures on the rooftops of a small suburban town. Adonis has since performed at major venues and independent festivals across the Arab world (such as the Beirut Holidays Festival, Amman’s BAB Festival, Egypt’s Al Geneina Theatre, and Dubai’s Step Music Festival), releasing three studio albums, and writing music for Netflix, Pepsi, Lipton, Brazil’s Globo TV, and the Lebanese Ministry of Tourism.
Produced by Jean-Marie Riachi, the band’s third album “Nour” (2017) consecrated Adonis as one of the leading Arabic independent music acts, and allowed it to achieve its first mainstream success through the album’s lead single “Eza Shi Nhar”.
In July 2019, Adonis launched its fourth album “12 Sa3a” at the Jounieh International Festival, and, later that year, kicked off its first European tour.
